Someone Else's Birthday -- By Sally I. Kennedy

After Christmas, a few years ago, I received an email from a family friend, a young mom who was commenting on her toddler’s take on Christmas.

“I think my son will really look forward to Christmas next year - now that he gets it - on the kid level anyway. He knows it is Jesus' Birthday and I think he's pretty impressed that on someone else's birthday - he gets all the gifts!”

Short and sweet. Profound truth. The “kid level” is where I hope I’m at now this time of year has rolled around. For a lot of reasons, particularly because it’s Someone else’s birthday.

Happy birthday, Jesus!
